The 7100 pound weighing Wall Street’s famous charging bull sculpture, which showcases the sentiment of strength, energy and unpredictability of stock market, is now facing the 50 inch Fearless Girl structure right in front of its path. Kristen Visbal’s bronze sculpture is being loved all over the world and has attracted thousands of tourists at the spot again but sculptor Di Modica the creator of Charging Bull is distressed with this new hindrance right in front of his iconic sculpture.

Modica believes that the art piece is exploiting the perspective of his sculpture and is portraying a negative perspective of the bull as a villain. The Fearless Girl was installed a night before the International Women’s Day i.e. 7th March 2017 and the city has granted a permission to keep the sculpture for 11 months on the particular site.

The sculpture portrays the need of women in the role of leaders in maximum corporate companies, but since the sculpture also portrays an adolescent girl and not an adult woman, does the ideation goes beyond gender and signifies the fragile economic conditions of the Third World Countries in front of America’s powerful Stock Exchange?
